and broke. and if parachuting just isn't extreme enough, you've got to try swooping. >> there is a little wreck here. >> that's calmed a swoop. >> oh! international soccer fans, they're passionate about their sport, we know that and known to maybe throw some stuff on the field. garbage, beer bottles, whatever. this video crosses the line, though, and i think you'll agree with me. this is sduring an asian champions league quarterfinal between two teams. one from iran and one from saudi arabia. the game is taking place in iran. now, watch this. a player in the yellow jersey there, he's on the iranian team. he picks something up that somebody threw on the field. it's like a small, black, sphere-type object, and watch what he does. he goes, watch this. tosses it off the field. seconds later -- >> oh! >> it's been reported that could have been a live grenade. you see this thing explode just
2:02 pm
seconds after he throws this thing off the field. it could have been in his hand. that could have blown up his arm. >> that could have killed this guy. >> are you kidding me? >> okay. wait a minute. a real, actual military grenade? >> it's unclear what it was exactly. maybe a homemade explosive device. a low-grade grenade. lots of theories are out there. >> regardless, i mean, who throws an explosive device, homemade or otherwise, on to a soccer field? >> and this was a home game for this yellow team. so if you're a fan of this yellow team, the iranian team what kind of fan is that? >> you know what's going to happen? they're not going to be invited to international games if this is something people have to worry about. >> it doesn't appear anybody was hurt. as you see in the video, no one was next to this thing. now police are trying to investigate to figure out where this thing came from. i'm not going to lie to you two. the first time i saw this video -- waterworks. >> come on.
2:03 pm
>> i cried. >> you are quite sensitive. >> especially sensitive to animals who are in need. >> oh, boy. he's -- >> look at this poor deer stuck in a wrought iron fence in california. this deer was caught in this fence that surrounded the fairgrounds. never fear. a bunch of truck drivers, acc d according to the post came to this deer's rescue. >> hey! >> all right. there you go. you okay? >> he's out, but look -- watch, tc watch what hahas looks l -- oh, no. oh, he's like got an indent nation his rib cage area. >> he must have been there for a while. >> probably have to put him down tharchlts just means his legs are asleep. pins and needles hven't worn off. >> might just be no blood in this back legs. >> he's moving them. >> give him five more minutes. >> they start moving its legs back and forth trying to get the blood flow back into the legs. look how gentle and sweet and
2:04 pm
loving and awesome softies these guys are. >> yeah. they're like -- this is like a visit to the chiropractor. >> unfortunately, nick, we will novelty see the deer run off in this video. the video ends as they're massaging the deer's legs, but we did get in contact with the poster of this video, and he said a few minutes later, think deer did get up and run off. >> just magic. there he goes. it's a double jewelry store heist executed at the same time and you won't believe how these criminals did it. check out this individual grow british columbia. it's inside a mall and that is the janitor right there, but watch what happens. >> oh, boy. >> oh, boy. >> this jeep comes crashing through the mall doors, crashes into a jewelry store. then crashes into another jewelry store. >> that takes some -- >> police say they all had d
2:05 pm
disguises and tools and targeted the cases where the most expensive items were held. >> you can tell they were casing the joint because the guy driving the vehicle knew exactly where to go and what areas to hit. >> when you see them get out, two head for one jewelry store and the others head for somewhere else. >> this is not your average smash and grab. these people thought it out. >> the police say there were other incidents where this happened. >> when a car drove into a mall and robbed a jewelry store? >> uh-huh. >> they need to make smaller hallways in their mall or feel them up with -- >> the jeep that they're driving, stolen. found a couple of blocks away. the only person in any real danger was the janitor. he had to jump out of the way once that car comes crashing through. >> must have been a confusing day for him, plus, like, man, i just swept this floor. >> look at the mess he's going to have to clean up. there's a religious festival
2:06 pm
in china that was celebrated recently, but what the organizers did became incredibly controversial. >> what is that? what does that look like? looks like neem a cage. >> that is exactly what it is. the organizers of this festival decided that they didn't want beggars to harass and follow the thousands of people that were going to come to this festival. so they decided that they were going to build these cages and put these beggars in them. >> needless to say, human rights organizations are really upset saying that this was a human zoo and that these organizers were treating these people like animals. organizers have reportedly said that the cages were built to keep control oevver the beggars and apparently these people can come in and out of the cages as they wish, except, if they do leave the cages, they're going to be banished and escorted out of the city. >> some festival that is. what are they celebrating?
2:07 pm
exclusionism? >> this is really heartbreaking to see. i mean, there are children in these cages. >> if they wanted to do this to not distract from the ceremony, i think it did the opposite. if anything, this looks more like a spectacle and now you're kind of going, what are these people behind bars? it's a wide-open colorado mountain road. >> then you hear a noise. i wonder what's coming? >> see what's coming, next. a guy is breaking through the window of a bar, and you know what the bar patrons are thinking? >> how are we going to handle this guy? >> see just how they do handle [ dog growls, barks ] bring your dog to work day... not our best idea. are better than others.
